Start planning now to join the Desert Stars for the 2018 “Arizona Heritage” Havasupai Weekend October 5-7.  This year’s event will be a “Destination Rallye” beginning in one place and traversing a part of our beautiful state to reach the endpoint.  Along the way, we’ll make a relaxing stop or two to explore some of Arizona’s highpoints and refuel (us and the car!!).  Veteran Rallyemeisters Chuck and Ava Stanford are planning what is sure to be a highlight of your fall driving season.Team Stanford has promised an adventurous weekend drive to Arizona’s high country including all the fresh air, fall colors, majestic scenery, and friendly excitement you can fit into three days and four wheels.  They’ve also promised a fun challenge for both rallye neophytes and experienced competitors that will feature sites and stops that have been a part of Arizona’s history and heritage.Plan to drive Friday afternoon up Hwy 87 from Phoenix – surely one of Arizona’s most scenic highways!  We’ll begin with “happy hour” in Payson on Friday evening for a meet and greet to have fun and plan rallye strategy.  We’ll depart Payson after breakfast on Saturday morning with instructions to get us to lunch among the tall pines near Show Low, and end the day in Pinetop with an “attitude adjustment” in the cool White Mountains.  Our Awards Banquet will be held at a very special 80-year old Arizona Landmark and Steakhouse, along with prizes for all and the traditional Indian Kachinas for the winners.  Sunday after breakfast will be on your own to explore the Pinetop Region or take a different scenic route home through the dramatic Salt River Canyon.This is an all-inclusive weekend package and includes two nights hotel, all meals and refreshments from Friday evening thru Sunday morning, entry fees at attractions, and prizes.  Not included are your fuel, adult beverages, and any bribes you feel appropriate for the Rallyemeisters...  Pricing is a reasonable $495 per couple, all in, for the weekend.This 2018 version of the Desert Stars’ Fall Classic Rallye Weekend is now open for member and guest registration.  Please contact Debbie Ichiyama 480-268-9535 to register.
